AMBASSADOR RAPP: I think that for the Cambodian society, it's extremely important, and then for the world, it's important. After Nuremberg, for 45 years there really wasn't any international justice, and it began again in the former Yugoslavia, and now we have a situation where whenever there are atrocities against civilians, people say there's got to be accountability and when cases like this happen, when (Ratko) Mladic is brought in even 15 years after Srebrenica, it's a message to others who might commit similar crimes, that there are going to be consequences. That it may not happen tomorrow or the next day, but eventually, you'll be in the dock as well.
